    1st I used gutter mesh but it was ripping up my pants near the knees. Then I switched to a screen. I like it much better. I also used duct tape (silver stuff) to hold it on. Some people use JB weld or epoxy but the duct tape seems to work well also.

              ripping your pants? how would it rip your pants unless you mounted it on the outside of the fairing

                  I used regular storm door screening and a lot of glue from a hot glue gun. I would use JB weld if I was to ever do it again as the hot glue does not hold forever.

                    The mesh mod was the first official mod I did to my Kat, and still one of my favorites... My bike looks like Haggisman's old ride.. well it will when a certain mexican gets finished painting my cowl and other parts

                        I used a automotive grill from APC. It's a little harder to work with (polished aluminum) but it looks great. I used a high heat epoxy to hold them in place

                          The only thing everyone has seemed to miss on this post is that he has a pre 98. Our holes are a lot different from the ones on a 98+. I have thought about doing my side holes, but I have yet to see anyone who has done it on an early Kat.

                            Give it time. We'll get it done on Bonestrosity's bike.... He just doesn't know it yet!

                              That should be interesting. I have been looking at my side panels, and it is pretty tight in there with that big support bracket running down across it. I have noticed that Kwebbel has it on his bike though.

                              Might have to look a little more into it. I would like to put mesh on mine. I already have it in the smaller holes in the front of the fairings, and the belly fairing.
